After a one-game stint in the starting lineup last week, Kansas freshman Jalen Wilson was back on the bench at the start of KU’s exhibition finale against Pittsburg State on Thursday night at Allen Fieldhouse.
One week after a somewhat sluggish, 30-point win over Fort Hays State, the Jayhawks had no desire to let visiting Pittsburg State hang around in this one, rolling to a 102-42 victory.

It’s not often that a Kansas football game in November is greeted with anticipation in the days leading up to it. With the Jayhawks winning three or fewer games each of the past nine years, a late-season malaise became the norm for many within the fan base. Something about this season, and this week’s Sunflower Showdown against Kansas State, feels distinctly different, though, to KU’s veterans. By Benton Smith
Although his head coach, Les Miles, described Carter Stanley being named the Big 12’s Offensive Player of the Week as “wonderful,” the Kansas football team’s starting quarterback went out of his way to downplay the honor. By Benton Smith
According to KU's annual Equity in Athletics report, at the University of Kansas the average salary of head coaching positions of men’s teams is over $1.5 million more than that of the head coaches of women’s teams. The report, which was due Oct. 15 to the NCAA, was recently requested and acquired by the Journal-World. The report also notes that women's teams, in contrast to men's, lose millions of dollars a year.
Kansas senior safety Mike Lee didn’t agree with the call, but there was no looking back after it happened.
Amid allegations that the University of Kansas basketball program committed recruiting violations, the university has cited a report to argue that its record of compliance with NCAA rules was on par with “the industry standard.” However, when the Journal-World requested a copy of the report, KU officials declined to provide it.

Incognito no longer, a couple of Kansas football specialists found themselves directly in the middle of the limelight as the Jayhawks and their fans alike rollicked Saturday night on the field at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium. There would have been no party at all at the fourth quarter’s conclusion without long snapper Logan Klusman and kicker Liam Jones. By Benton Smith
A little more than an hour after the entire Kansas football team celebrated its last-second victory over Texas Tech with a swarm of fans on the turf Saturday night at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, quarterback Carter Stanley tried his best to recall the “blur” of the frenzied scene to reporters when a shout from the hallway interrupted him. “He’s a stud!” offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon shouted in the direction of Stanley, following the senior’s 415-yard performance in a 37-34 KU win. By Benton Smith
An already shorthanded Kansas defense lost an integral player within nine minutes Saturday night at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.

It was supposed to be the Kansas size that overwhelmed and swallowed up visiting Fort Hays State during Thursday’s exhibition opener at Allen Fieldhouse. Instead, it was the menacing KU defense that paced the Jayhawks to an 86-56 victory. Matt Tait

Not expected to play in Thursday’s 86-56 exhibition victory over Fort Hays State, Kansas senior Mitch Lightfoot found himself on the floor and in the Kansas lineup 4:10 into the game.

In a narrow, last-second loss for the Kansas football team at Texas this past weekend, a number of mistakes at various junctures of a wild game in Austin prevented the Jayhawks from pulling off the upset victory.

Whether former Adidas consultants — and now convicted felons — were boosters of KU Athletics is a big question in the NCAA’s case against the university. KU leaders this week sent out a flyer to thousands of local businesses that may create some confusion about that argument.

With turnover in college basketball becoming more prevalent with the addition of the transfer portal and players leaving due to graduation or turning professional, coaches constantly have to adjust.
For all the relatively positive vibes a last-second defeat at Texas seemed to generate for the downtrodden Kansas football program, the Jayhawks obviously encountered some defensive issues yet again in a 50-48 loss. As Les Miles succinctly put it during his Saturday night postgame press conference while glancing at the statistics in front of him, and reading that the Longhorns finished with 638 total yards, “That’s too much.” By Benton Smith

Usually understated during his weekly press conferences, Kansas football coach Les Miles heard something Monday afternoon that stirred him to exuberance. The subject material didn’t have anything to do with the Jayhawks’ performance this past weekend at Texas, either. Rather it was a matter of a procedural oversight on that Saturday night stage that appeared to go UT’s way. By Benton Smith

In college football, motivational ploys know no bounds. And it appears one such behind-the-scenes tactic carried out by the Kansas staff this past week left its mark on quarterback Carter Stanley. By Benton Smith
In the exhilarating moment, the Kansas Jayhawks were convinced they had done it. They arrived at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday convinced they could knock off No. 15 Texas. And when KU quarterback Carter Stanley found receiver Daylon Charlot in the back of the burnt orange south end zone for a two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter, the underdogs felt justified in their confidence.

By Benton Smith

KU football's offense needs to improve significantly in the second half of the season, but Les Miles sn’t interested in broadcasting the ways new O.C. Brent Dearmon plans to go about making that happen. A head coach doesn’t fire an O.C. six games into his tenure if the offense is humming along. Examine the statistical output from KU’s first six games and it’s easy to spot warts. By Benton Smith

By Benton Smith
Carter Stanley doesn’t consider himself a skilled basketball player. The senior Kansas quarterback has spent most of his time since about eighth grade focusing his athletic conquests on football, after all. During the past week, though, when Stanley runs the Jayhawks’ offense in practices, under the guidance of new coordinator Brent Dearmon, the QB can picture himself as a distributor on the hardwood.

It was January, and Andrew Parchment didn’t have Timberlands, snow boots, nor anything of the sort. So he put on a pair of slides over some socks and trudged from the student apartments over to KU’s football facility in order to sharpen his skills. Comfortably the Jayhawks’ leading receiver at the midway point of the season, Parchment thinks the time he invested in himself shortly after joining the program this past winter as a junior college transfer paid off.

There still is a long way to go before Kansas basketball coach Bill Self settles in on a set rotation and decides which players will play what roles for the 2019-20 Jayhawks. But after listening to Self talk at the team’s annual media day on Wednesday, you’d have to be crazy to think that freshman guard Christian Braun won’t be a part of the fun. By Matt Tait
Kansas basketball coach Bill Self on Wednesday spoke favorably about the new law in California that allows student-athletes in the state to profit on their name, likeness and image, calling the law “a very, very positive step” that puts the pay-for-play issue “on the front porch of everybody involved with the NCAA.” By Matt Tait

Even before Les Miles decided to make a drastic change on his coaching staff, firing offensive coordinator Les Koenning and promoting Brent Dearmon to O.C., the Kansas football head coach knew the Jayhawks’ bye week would be a critical juncture of the season.
Snoop Dogg may have two G’s in his name, but the hip-hop artist said he certainly didn’t make any promises to make his recent show at Allen Fieldhouse G-rated.

After two days of racing, the Jayhawks took home three medals at the Head of the Oklahoma regatta at the Oklahoma City Boathouse District.
With a 25-point home loss to No. 6 Oklahoma still taking up space in their minds, Kansas football players and head coach Les Miles didn’t really have any momentum to cling to while heading into their first bye week of the season. However, receiver Stephon Robinson provided one positive development the Jayhawks (2-4 overall, 0-3 Big 12) can take with them into the second half of the season.

Even under the best of circumstances, Kansas was facing a daunting task when it welcomed sixth-ranked Oklahoma to town.
The bloodbath some may have expected Saturday out of a matchup pitting offensive guru and Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley, his latest Heisman Trophy-aspiring quarterback, Jalen Hurts, and the No. 6 Sooners against an overmatched Kansas team didn’t turn out obscenely gory.
Facing a Heisman trophy contender and a top-10 team is no small feat, meaning Kansas had its hands full before the game even kicked off.

Nothing against captain Kyle Thompson and his 46.1 yards per punt, but the less Kansas sees of him on the field against Oklahoma the better. Thompson made regular appearances for the Jayhawks at TCU, punting nine times as KU struggled to stay on the field.

The Kansas football team’s Khalil Herbert predicament reached its seemingly inevitable conclusion Wednesday, as head coach Les Miles announced the senior running back is no longer with the program.
It’s easy for Les Miles to look back fondly at the times he led a football team onto the field to take on powerhouse Oklahoma. Miles, in his first year as the head coach at the University of Kansas, hasn’t faced the Sooners in nearly 15 years. But his underdog Oklahoma State teams gave rival OU enough fits when Miles led the Cowboys that his mostly favorable memories also include at least one instance of feeling some Bedlam-fueled wrath.
